    Baby Tiramisu

    If you’re a fan of the classic Italian dessert Tiramisu, try this quick, lower-calorie variation the next time you need a dessert in a hurry. Both types of ladyfingers—spongy and crunchy—work well.


    • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) nonfat ricotta cheese
    • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 12 ladyfingers (about 1 3/4 ounces)
    • 4 tablespoons brewed espresso, or strong coffee, divided
    • 2 tablespoons melted bittersweet chocolate chips


    Step 1
    Combine ricotta, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
    Step 2
    Place 6 ladyfingers in a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Spread the ricotta mixture over the ladyfingers. Place another layer of ladyfingers over the ricotta and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Drizzle with melted chocolate. 
    Step 3
    Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
